Social Distancing

This photo was captured on 29th of March at Diemen Centrum. This was immediately after the enactment of 1.5 meter rule and two police officers were also present at that time. When they didn’t obey the 1.5m rule people started commenting on them in a funny way. Then I realized that they knew this officers beforehand. Small town small talks. I posted this picture on my instagram handle @through.tearsofjoy. Below is my caption for this frame.

‘𝗦𝗼𝗰𝗶𝗮𝗹 𝗗𝗶𝘀𝘁𝗮𝗻𝗰𝗶𝗻𝗴.

On a positive note, small talk among the few people in a small town.
Last Sunday, I was curious to hear loud laughter and happy voices in the Centrum, only to discover this queue of people in front of this fries truck. I joined the queue for the fun of it. As expected people started pulling each others legs, spoke about random funny things.
I like to memorialize these dark days of 2020 with this happy picture.’
